Books
Buck Wildstar Adventures Series
Chandler Hobach's ten-part series "Buck Wildstar Adventures," a wretchedly written collection of dime novels of a fictionalized "wild west" version of the formation of the Rohearn city-states. Buck Wildstar, the main character, is a grizzled ace gunslinger from Bolivnia. The books are a loose amalgam of cheap action scenes and atrocious dialog, and yet they sell like hotcakes. Science has yet to explain why.

Music
Music exists much like it does in the real world, but with a bit more focus on electric, techno and house music. A popular pastime on fleet is writing music to be played in Extravia's Live club. It is also relatively easy to create your own 'channel' and be broadcast over the intraweb or locally.

Songs
Battle Buddy song! "When you hear the sound of battle, don’t you get too scared. Just grab your battle buddy, and say these psionics words: “Fuck you, Mutaren You can suck my dick. You can’t get me, Mutaren, because you’re just God’s farts."

Television Shows/Movies
As popular as they ever were, with movie serials and sagas being a big focus. Military movies are the most popular currently, as the Fleet taking off into space is a source of pride for Sirian.

Games
On the Extravia there is a holographic games system built into the central social gathering location of the ship as follows:

This Holographic Suite is designed primarily for head to head games. The games are viewable from projected screens around the balcony showing team statistics, individual players, or specific angles and encounters happening in the game. The Club has begun to become popular after the Ship’s Crew began hosting games a few times a week. Until now, Extravia personnel previously only knew it about.

Current Popular Games:

StellarAce: A flying simulator with a head to head competition of fleeing from an objective to a starship through an asteroid field. And Combat mode of trying to capture something from an enemy satellite.

Team Fortress: A classic team verses team game involving a set of buildings or mazes where one team must stop the other from capturing their base. There is an optional “Free For All Assassin” feature allowing one player to move about and kill anyone at his or her leisure adding a new level of challenge.

Head to Head:– A classic dueling scenario. It can involve physical combat, gunplay, psionics, anything you can throw at the other person causing them no permanent physical harm. Ohh, it does hurt though.
